One Hundred Per Cent Thrift

Stamp Device

Elizabeth Duncan

Last spring when we were planning to make our school 100 % in the purchase of Thrift Stamps, I suggested a little device for use in First and Second Grades which brought us good results.

A large aeroplane was cut from cardboard and a picture of an aviator pasted in place to make it more realistic. This was hung in a conspicuous place on the front wall. I then announced to the pupils that we were ready for a trip to France, but in order to secure a ride each one must show a Thrift Stamp. When a child could show his stamp he was put into the aeroplane. That is, his name was placed on the aeroplane, with a small colored seal beside it. To encourage the purchase of more than one stamp a colored star seal was added for every fifth stamp, and for every War Savings Stamp, a small flag seal was given. After a name had been placed, all who were in the aeroplane were given a ride. (Flying around the room.) The children entered heartily into the spirit of the game and before school closed in June every child had taken a ride and our entire school was 100 %.

To the Doll Who Shuts Her

Sleep, O my dolly, sleep;

Close your tiny eyes,
And dream, O my dolly, dream

Of playtime lullabies.
For soon, O my dolly, soon

We'll send out invitations
For all the other dolls to make

Tea-party preparations.
We'll bring your china dishes out;

You'll wear your gown of silk.
The cups we'll fill with water,

But we'll make believe it's milk.
The guests won't talk so very much,

They'll sit up in their chairs
And nibble oyster-cracker tarts

And tiny dolls' eclairs.
So sleep, O my dolly, sleep,

And don't make any noise;
But dream, O my dolly, dream

Of tea-parties and toys. - F. E. Siellivan

The wide use of folk games and dances in the school and on the playground is opening the eyes of teachers to the equal value of the folk song in creating and correcting musical taste.

Especially do we commend this volume to country teachers whose children are of varying ages. No other songs will so appeal to young and old alike and no other songs are so apt to be within the range of voices of different ages.
